Companies in difficulty

Cornillier Avocats advises and assists managers, creditors and investors in the field of prevention of difficulties and collective procedures, both in counselling and in litigation.

From the very first discussions with managers, Cornillier Avocats’ multidisciplinary team carries out a diagnosis of the legal, financial and HR situation, in conjunction with managers, chartered accountants or statutory auditors.

Its aim is to objectively assess the company’s economic situation, identify risks and assist the managers in their decision-making process by presenting the pros and cons of the various possible procedures.

Cornillier Avocats assists companies in the implementation of procedures to prevent difficulties (employment protection plan, ad hoc mandate, conciliation) and collective procedures (safeguard procedure, receivership, judicial liquidation).

Cornillier Avocats is a true partner, working hand in hand with companies in their relations and exchanges with the various players (mediators, court-appointed agents, court-appointed administrators, magistrates, etc.).

Cornillier Avocats also works alongside companies wishing to submit a takeover bid and assists them in the preparation of their bid.
